Victor Crowley

"Victor Crowley" (2017, Adam Green, ArieScope Pictures) follows the plot 10 years on from the events of "Hatchet III" (2013).

A group of people making a horror movie about the events of the previous film and a TV crew accompanied by sole survivor, Andrew (Parry Shen), doing an on-site anniversary talk show all wind up facing off against a newly resurrected Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder) who is hellbent on ending them all.

The Hatchet movies are pretty decent. They strike a good balance of gore, humour and action. They don't take themselves too seriously, and so far Victor Crowley has never tried to rap or launched himself into space.

This latest film manages to continue along the same themes and deliver a solid comedy horror with cheesy banter and plenty of interesting but disposable characters. Released on the sly, it manages to do the impossible; be a decent sequel in a line of already pretty decent sequels.

Campy action worthy of your time!
